Service In Obscurity

by | Mar 12, 2021 | Vital Life Application Devotions



10 After the time of Abimelek, a man of Issachar named Tola son of Puah, the son of Dodo, rose to save Israel. He lived in Shamir, in the hill country of Ephraim. He led Israel twenty-three years; then he died, and was buried in Shamir.


He was followed by Jair of Gilead, who led Israel twenty-two years. He had thirty sons, who rode thirty donkeys. They controlled thirty towns in Gilead, which to this day are called Havvoth Jair. When Jair died, he was buried in Kamon.

These two men judged Israel for a combination of 45 years. We know the length of each man’s rule, but that is basically all. Except that one had 30 sons who rode around on 30 donkeys. Do you think they were used by God? Yes, they were. We may not know much about them, but we can know that God uses even unknown people to do great things for him. Be willing to serve God even if it is in obscurity, and it is only known between you and God.
